Professional, courteous, and gentle as always. The whole staff makes sure the comfort level for the patient is at the maximum level. Very much appreciated as I am a "dentist coward" and will avoid coming if I worry about the fearfactor too much. Not any issues here, though, they know how to make me feel safe and as comfortable as possible at all times. I really appreciate all their efforts, I know it isn't easy. I always HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mo to all my friends and relatives.

As usual, the level of professionalism and genuine caring for the patients was well above average here. The entire staff makes you feel welcome and inform you each step of your journey. Whether it is a routine visit or something moreemergent, they consistently treat me and my whole family with care and consideration through it all. With each explanation, Dr. Mohindra makes sure that we understand all potential treatment and options available. While going to the dentist isn't the most pleasant outing, this staff takes the apprehension out of each visit. Thank you, Dr. Mo and staff!!

Best team and dentist out there! Dr Mo and his staff are so well trained in dentistry! They have the newest technology and equipment and have the best bedside manner. I went in and had two teeth drilled to almost thenerve (zero pain!), filled with partial crowns (made on the spot!), and out in less than 3 hours!! Who does that?!? Dr Mo! He was always asking how I was doing, letting me know the steps involved, and was just very pleasant and understanding. Floss and brush your teeth folks but if you happen to need dental work then go to Dr Mo!

Growing up I was terrified of dentist! I never had a good experience as a kid because dentist always seemed to find something wrong that needed fixing. As an adult I shared the same experience except that now I was payingfor the work. I don't feel that way with this dentist! Dr. Mo and his staff really take care and look out for their patients!

Unfortunately, I am an experienced Dental patient. I was given tetracycline as a child to treat Romantic Fever. It stained and weakend my teeth. I am SUPER PICKY about my Dental care and changed Dentists frequently until I found Dr Mohindra.He is a smart, skilled, effective communicator. And the office is tech savy which is important to me.

All staff again were professional, friendly, and helpful. From front office (Gaby and Elaine) to back office (Cynthia and Richard) to Dr. Mo himself, they always treat me with the highest level of respect and care. Dr. Mo has a wonderfulbedside manner, always keeps my comfort in mind and is meticulous about explaining procedures and possible treatment methods along with all benefits and risks. He shows he truly cares about his patients and it is evident in his delivery of care. I've noticed he is able to easily shift gears and will speak to each patient depending upon their level of comprehension, as a fellow health care professional I know that is sometimes hard to do but he does it with ease. Love this practice and wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

There is never any wait time. You are always seen on time. The convenience of their onsite and same day lab is worth its wait in gold! I had an old crown replaced today and walked out the door with itsreplacement. Gone are the days of walking around in an uncomfortable temporary for a week or two!!!

Very pleased with today's visit, as usual the staff was unfailingly polite, professional, yet put me at ease with their calm demeanor and helpful attitudes. Even though they are all individuals with their own unique personalities, they eachmake me feel welcome no matter how often I show up for appointments. That takes a lot of skill!! But seriously, it is difficult to find this level of professionalism from a group of people who still manage to treat their patients warmly and with a welcoming attitude. LOVE this place and its staff!

Dr. Mo has a wonderful method of explaining complicated procedures simply in a way that makes it easy to understand. Elaine and the other staff members always act in a professional yet personal way and I feel very comfortable getting mytreatments. One thing I like about Dr. Mo and staff is that they are very down to earth and always strive to ensure my comfort before all else. I can honestly say I have never been hurt there or been afraid, and that is not true for other dentists I've encountered in my life. I would highly recommend Dr. Mo and staff to anyone looking for a dentist for life, they will do whatever they can to make sure you have great oral health!

I had a crown break on Sunday. (Office is closed). I am traveling tomorrow (Monday) to Texas at 6am. I called Dr. Mo on his after hours line. I left a voicemail asking for him to tell me what my optionswere. Dr. Mo asked me to send him a photo of the crown and tooth hole over cellphones. He gave me a basic prognosis and told me to meet him at his office at 2pm. I brought my 6 year old and 4 year old (both who are patients) and they played with his kids(which he took time away from to help me) Dr. Mo temporarily put my crown back in to allow me to travel and have a complete smile. I will return on Friday to have a more serious repair done. I recommend Dr. Mo to anyone who wants their life changed forever!

Excellent office, excellent staff, excellent doctor. Very highly recommend Smileworks of Redondo Beach. The doctor explained exactly what was needed, what was going on with my teeth. He explained what he was doing while he was doing it. Boththe doctor and his assistant regularly checked on my comfort level. I even got to watch Friends on Netflix while I was being seen!!!
